Shakira’s New Single ‘Don’t Wait Up’ To Be Out on July 16
Here is the conversation. It starts with, “Where are you?” Then it continues, “Won’t you put down your phone? Don’t be afraid if it gets late… I need to do something for myself.” She further writes, “You’ll survive, it’s just one night/ I wish I’d be happy without ya.” She ends her conversation by writing, “Don’t wait up” followed by a Kiss emoticon.
It seems these are going to be the lines of her new single and the song would be ‘Don’t Wait Up’. If this is gonna be true, this new single would be Shakira’s first English song since ‘Try Anything’ of 2016.
